After retiring from the civil service, Dorothy was a volunteer at the Saint Francis Hospice bridal shop in Collier Row for 15 years and her family from Hornchurch thought it would be a great cause for their fundraising.
Dorothy's sister Rose Edwards, 87, collected the donation as well as funds raised from her grandson, John-Paul's chicken truck which she also supported him in buying.
John-Paul, his son Charles and friends presented the cheque to Saint Francis fundraiser Andy Furneaux on Saturday, July 20 at the Romford Market traders' Summer Bonanza.
The Summer Bonanza was a challenge given to the Romford Market traders by the council. They also raised funds for the Saint Francis Hospice and put on activities such as face painting, a summertime scavenger hunt, balloon modelling and more.
